Atlona Unveils 4K Collaboration System For Cloud-Based Conferencing Services
Atlona has introduced its first HDBaseT-equipped collaboration system providing 4K AV switching, USB and HDMI extension, and system control for PC-based conferencing using Skype, WebEx and GoToMeeting cloud services. The two-piece system, the AT-UHD-HDVS-300-KIT, uses a single category (CATx) cable connection between a conferencing hub and a 4K display with USB camera.
The HDVS-300-KIT consists of the AT-UHD-HDVS-300-TX, which serves as the conferencing hub, video switch, and HDBaseT transmitter, and the AT-UHD-HDVS-300-RX, which decodes the HDBaseT signal and delivers an HDMI signal to the display. The HDVS-300-RX, which supports AV, Ethernet and control signals, is also equipped with USB and HDMI inputs for carrying video back to the hub.
The AT-UHD-HDVS-300-KIT is compatible with 4K sources and displays up to 4K/UHD@60Hz with 4:2:0 color sub-sampling. Auto-input selection and display control with CEC enables automatic display on/off control as well as volume adjustment from the HDVS-300-TX. The kit supports TCP/IP and RS-232 control. The AT-UHD-HDVS-300-KIT will be available in April and will list for $1,899.99 (US).
